Using a 4.6 4r in a 3.8

Is this as simple as swapping the bells or is there a problem with the whole case?

Sheet. So basically, if you want a built 4r for your 3.8 you have to get yours rebuilt? Were the late model stang 3.8s any better? Sorry for the noob questions.. never had to deal with 3.8s before and I'm probably using the wrong search terms...

get a tranny from a 99 mustang... has better internals... some minor rewiring needs to be done, but it isn't too bad from what I hear

Hey, check out the Group Purchase for a Built JMod Tranny. It is 99+

The Parts Bin Special is DEAD! It is being parted out.

or a 98-01 explorer tranny, since it had the 5.0 until 2001, it has the same bolt pattern as the v6 and is designed to handle more power.
